Google will give you lots of pics of bigger ones and I can point you toward some build threads if you are interested.
Are you kidding me!? If it wasn't for the fact this post was written while I was with my neighbor I'd say you are my neighbor
She's a terrarium person and so when we were hanging out last night, exchanging ideas back & forth (there's actually more similarities then one would think at first).
She has a unused 10g with a 10g size screen-cube over top of it she's giving me for (originally) shrimp. So last night with our idea tossing around session tree frogs came up and since they're easier to keep then others, would be a ideal "start" for me.
Sooooo then I was wondering if you could set up pretty much a fish tank with the screen cube top and create a mini-wet/dry world ( you call it paludarium ). Like having some small fish live in the bottom in the water (normal fish tank set up) and outta it coming trees etc for the frogs to live in.

But I HAVE TO strongly underline the point I have NO CLUE about frogs! Living above a fish tank, would they jump & drown themselves or something?
And the unavoidable issue to me, they only do eat live crickets right? Do they come in frozen foods or something like fish food does? Cause I can NOT see myself with live crickets to be fed

I'm sorry to hear that!
Well then if all you got in the 5g is 2 snails, I'd put a few shrimp in it, just not too many. Assuming you have good water, plenty of plants (not the plastic ones), maybe even moss for them in there?
